I loved this company's exceptional service. We never had more than two inches in the driveway, they cleaned the approach to our driveway in order to avoid dumping from the city plough and lastly, they never damaged the house, pavement or lawn.
This company is no longer providing services and we miss them.
You did a great job for us. Should you decide to restart your business please contact me.
Have used this company for several seasons and they did a great job of bringing our lawn back to life from a weedy mess in just one season. This season (2016) we confirmed our renewal by email with Mike in March. By early May everyone around us had cut their lawn but we had not received any service.
Last week they came out and cut & fertilized. 6 days later we received an email saying they were going out of business asap. Received a bill for services the previous week.
We're looking for a new service. We were happy with the service. They were regular and consistent, and polite. I downgraded them on quality and communication for the following reasons:
1) The only issue we had is that their standup machine doesn't really fit down one side of our house, so there is some new damage to a fencepost and a few boards where it seems that the mower or weedwhacker chewed the wood up.
2) We would definitely have preferred more notice about the cancellation. We confirmed well in advance of the season, so we feel we'll have difficulty getting service this year, along with their other abandoned customers.
Whatever the reason, we wish them well in their future, whatever it may be.
The son of a gun team is meticulous and thorough. Always schedules work before showing up and takes pride in their profession. Grass looks great year round! I dont ever consider anyone perfect, but they are what i would expect for lawn maintenance. I have been using them for 4 years.
I hired Son of Gun for the second year and was definitely unsatisfied this past season.
I walk my dog every morning around my neighbourhood and found other snow removal services come and gone but not mine until well past noon. When only inquiring about poor service compared to last year, I was confronted with defensiveness and excuses.
My employer also hired Son of a Gun and was very unhappy with their service. We had to call them and request a snow removal after all employees had parked their vehicles. Again, responses where hostile and defensive.
I'm not certain what happened with their service from one year to the next but I will not be referring or hiring this company again
What offends me most about Son of a Gun are their responses to inquires in regards to their service. My questions were mild and only asking why there's a difference in level of service. Response was "what do you want me to do?"
Do what I hired you to do???!!
